Watch Halsey’s ‘Graveyard’ live at the AMAs as she produces a piece of modern art

Halsey’s ‘Graveyard‘ live at the American Music Awards was pretty damned fantastic last night (Sunday, November 24th, 2019).

The Los Angeles-based singer songwriter performed the song with live vocals on an all-white set, wearing all-white clothes and dancing with just one female dancer. The dancer was also all in white.

The performance began with both Halsey and the dancer moving onto, under and around opposite sides of a table as Halsey sang.

As her ‘Graveyard‘ performance went on, however, Halsey began daubing the other woman with paint.

The other woman then returned the favor, until both she and the singer were covered from head to foot with multi-colored paint, including their faces.

Halsey’s ‘Graveyard‘ live at the AMAs ended with the table being flipped over onto its side to reveal a table top that was covered in so much paint it looked like a piece of modern art, with both women posing in technicolor next to it.

The performance itself was almost flawless, with only one tiny slip on white paint on the dancer’s part and Halsey herself struggling to take her jacket off on cue.

Halsey wins AMA for Favorite Song

Earlier in the evening, the 25-year-old singer was also awarded the AMA for Favorite Song — Pop/Rock for her song ‘Without Me’, although she was beaten out for Artist of the Year later on in the evening by Taylor Swift.

Halsey’s ‘Graveyard‘ is from the singer’s upcoming third studio album Manic, which is due to be released in January, 2020. It is the second song so far released from the album.

As for the American Music Awards, the televised awards show had its usual lackluster viewing numbers with only 6.7 million people in the U.S. watching it, although it did see a gain of around 200,000 viewers over last year.

Watch Halsey’s ‘Graveyard’ live at the AMAs in the video below. And remember, while she is doing all that, those vocals are live.

Quite something, eh?
